    I worked at LSU as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    diligent and eager to learn knowledge,“I was an unpaid intern and I had no problem with it。Many people are outrageously exploited at work, but interns are not among them. After all, they are getting a free education, something that few universities provide these days.

    Cons

    shouldn't relegate the vital task to one department or some interns or consultants.

    Advice to Management

    This is all helpful, but if companies are serious about interns, they should pay them.
